History

The bridge was probably built in the C18 to carry the road over the Afon Dulas into Powys.

Exterior

Built of coursed slate stone. An elliptical arch of squared voussoirs, with flush spandrels and a low parapet, coped with flush cramped shale stone copings. A small square relief culvert passes through the E abutment. The carriageway is slightly humped and the parapet is correspondingly peaked.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a good C18 bridge, unusual for the period in that the arch takes an elliptical form.
